ABOUT PILGRIMS’ PRODUCE
We grow a large variety of vegetables, fruits, berries and nuts for folks in our local community via: Farmer’s Markets, our own CSA box program, U-Pick as well as other local outlets. Just minutes to Vernon and Armstrong at the base of Eagle Rock cliff face we farm 13.7 acres using a few tractors and lots of man (and woman) power. With 6 high tunnel greenhouses along with field crops, orchards and permaculture sections we grow a wide variety of high quality and certified organic produce for our local community. Pilgrims’ Produce is a well established farm (since 1991) with new owners, Dan and Kat Saxton. We invite you to join our team! There is always lots happening and such a wealth of knowledge to tap into.
Hardworking, upbeat and motivated (team setting or solo) while doing physically demanding tasks in rain or hot Okanagan heat. Someone who can work fast, skillfully and to the best of their ability. We’re happy to do on site training and experience is a huge asset!
Everyone is expected to participate in all farm tasks from planting, weeding, greenhouse work, harvesting, washhouse work, Farmers Markets, etc… There are a lot of different tasks which require physical and mental flexibility (from crawling on the ground to helping customers at market) We do our best to allow everyone to alternate jobs throughout the day. Physical strength and agility needed: Can you lift 40lbs? Crawl in the dirt? Squat? (Tasks vary and farm work is better than a gym membership!)
Term: Most likely to start at the beginning of April and go to the end of October depending on the season itself.
Weekly hours: 40 hrs a week 5-6 days a week but will vary over the season, at peak season more hours may be needed.
